“When I heard about OTA, I did not have the resources to pay for the program. But my family member who attended the Market Timing encouraged me and I looked for a solution. Guess what? I went for a bank loan because I trusted the education program! I have no regrets whatsoever because what I have obtained from OTA is a life skill.. A skill for life, it cannot be taken away, I can only improve it. The OTA centre in Dubai where I took the training is fantastic. The instructors are always on hand to support the student and it is generally a very supportive community. My student counsellor, Sibi is a good friend now.. I feel great being part of the OTA community and the resources available to students online are all amazing. It you are not in OTA... you are missing big! I travel all the way from Kenya to Dubai to attend the courses and the time I spend in Dubai is the best thing because I get energized and motivated to continue improving my skills. Long live OTA! We meet again in September for the Futures course... Irfan is amazing!”

“Great course for anyone considering trading online. Not only easy to understand and replicate but ongoing support from the OTA counselors, instructors and the general OTA community sets OTA apart from the competition. Highly recommended.”

“I had never traded before and was a bit apprehensive about the course. After completing the core strategy course, I was amazed to see how thoughtfully the course is designed. It is so mathematical and accurate that I was completely absorbed into it. The fee structure is on higher side, but you can get back quickly.”

“I'm normally a skeptic about things looking too good, Online Trading Academy was one of those things. After finalizing Core Strategy however, I'm fully convinced that this works and is the closest you can get to "mechanical" trading leaving emotions a minimal chance to influence your trading and giving you the best possible foundation to start a new career. In addition, the network of support and peers this program offers simply leaves no excuse not to build your new career this way.”

“As a new OTA student, I feel part of this community and my life will be transformed to the best. With only 8 days, I've learned a lot about the market and chart reading.”

“The course is amazing! You really get what you pay for. They make sure you understand everything on the course, supported with resources/tools that you can use to enhance your skills. Instructors are awesome, they are very knowledgeable and have mastery on each topic/course that they teach. I would definitely recommend OTA to my friends and family.”

“Demystifying trading like nobody's business. OTA has given me the confidence to go into markets I always wanted to go into. Above all I feel I'm on my way to achieving my ultimate goals and God willing living the life that I want to live. ”

“I truly enjoyed the program and it helped me a lot. The instructor would teach us one on one in the class until we would fully understand the concept.”

“OTA was honestly a life-changing experience. I'm only 16 so I had never even seen a chart before but I am so glad I got an education from OTA instead of trying to do it myself. The support system here is amazing and everyone goes out of their way to make sure you are happy and that you will be successful. I 100% would recommend this establishment if you ever want to see where trading could take you.”

“OTA has a very professional approach to learning trading. This combined with a backup of online videos and the ability to follow up with experts makes it an attractive proposition as a means to educating oneself abut this topic.”

“I would recommend not to make the same mistake as many of us have done, educate yourself with Online Trading Academy before wasting money anywhere else...”

“OTA is an extremely professional organisation that has covered all bases when it comes to their core strategy, with many resources for students to use.”

The program not only offers the analytical studies but includes all aspects of how to become a successful trader and a business owner (managing your account and risk analysis). Truly one of the best programs I have attended in the duration of my career life.”

I do accept the challenge to make a profit amount from the instructor and I'm glad to confirm I had achieved all my targets in the class and I will do the same for my real account as well as to motivate myself.”

“As an amateur trader I had made many losses. During 2008 crash I was bankrupt. I was never able to understand the charts. After joining OTA things were crystal clear. With extremely great instructors in OTA I got the chance to understand the charts in depth. Now I don't need to watch the fundamentals, support, resistances but just the strategy taught by OTA. The best part is that OTA is 24x7 available for us. Weekly 4-5 trading sessions, online retakes, foundation sessions. In whole, OTA is an extensive education platform for trading and the best in this field. I have a self confidence that if I am choosing a level it will work and even if it doesn't work there is OTA behind me to tell me whether I was wrong in my choice, what was the mistake and most important part how to rectify my mistakes. OTA guides us from basics to bring us to the mastery levels. Trust me, investing in education is 1000 times better than losing without understanding. Thanks and Regards.”

“I love everything about Online Trading Academy and I do not regret a single minute on joining this beautiful community or family if I can say. Still impressed about how the instructors are patient and care for helping us on every question we have. It's like a mother who cares about their children. I see light at the end of the tunnel. Bachir and Chris have a very amazing personality, and saying thanks I think is not enough. As my instructor says, "it's just the beginning," and it's true, Online Trading Academy does take care of us even after this class as they will not leave us alone. Joining XLT is another step which is wonderful and I feel myself lucky to join this wonderful community. These instructors are like ocean of knowledge. Well, there is lot more to say and I do believe words sometimes can't replace what you feel inside yourself. No one has told me to say these things, I'm saying It from the bottom of my heart.”

“I'm Ukrainian and joined the Online Trading Academy in the end of July 2014. I can see now that it's for sure one of THE BEST DECISIONS I MADE IN MY LIFE. The approach of the Academy is entirely personal and everyone here DOES want YOU to SUCCEED. Tuition rates do seem quite high in the beginning, but once I started taking classes and straight away applying it, on demo account at first - I really saw my results improving literally almost every day: and the amounts of money I started to make really showed me what I was paying for. I plan to continuously study, because the world of finance is entirely another planet and there's always something you should know...”

“Online Trading Academy Dubai really goes the extra mile to make you part of a trading community and their support is an integral part of their graduates' success.”

“Since I have been part of Online Trading Academy, it changed the way of thinking about business in me. Jose, he is amazing. I think I could not have better understanding of core strategy than I learnt it from him. I am proud to be his student.”

“I have already registered for forex and XLT .. I trust these guys now, their strategy does work like a charm.”

“Amazing introduction and skill up grade. Never a dull moment. Excellent technique. Builds confidence and teaches how not to act like an amateur to lose money and get discouraged. A must for a serious trader. Builds pride to declare that you are a trader of market instruments.”

“I believe if you are going to be a trader you need to educate yourself, and the right place is Online Trading Academy.”

“I never thought that by doing these classes I would get changed in my life overall. It made me more disciplined, committed to my family and business as never before. Whether I will make money out of trading or not is not the weakness of the classes or instructors, it will all be me who will use the rules or not. I loved the way Don explained everything. The good thing about Online Trading Academy instructors is that they are not jealous of sharing the things they do themselves. best wishes”

“Online Trading Academy center is well maintained and manned by helpful, supportive staff.”

“I am very impressed with Online Trading Academy in Dubai. The impression was formed from the very first day when I attended the half day presentation. Everybody was very welcoming and appeared passionate about what they had to share with the interested parties. I thoroughly enjoyed the Forex course and thought that Bachir is a very capable teacher and demonstrated a keen interest to engage the course participants in what he obviously loves and feels passionate about. His ability to achieve the position as full time trader, thus able to support himself through trading, is motivational to the participants. I value the fact that I can retake the sessions as many times as I need to so that the rules can be reinforced to help me become a better, and eventually a good, trader. The after-sale service available is impressive and I feel supported whilst I am finding my feet as a potential profitable trader. Thanks, Online Trading Academy!”

“Best of the best!!”


“It's a very good experience to learn the Forex in Online Trading Academy. They have given me a big platform to earn money professionally.”

“I can honestly say that from the first advertisement on the radio, to my last class with Bachir, each class and every person I have met has been VERY professional and very friendly. I love coming here, even just for visits and the classes compensated for my horrid days at work and gave me more reasons and drive to trade (to leave my job in the future). I really enjoyed Bachir's strict but friendly approach, Tarek's honest approach and loved Sean's methods to teaching.”

“It is the best way to go to world trade market.”

“It has been an extended fruitful journey and the classes have contributed to fine tuning my trading and giving me a direction in how I should set up my trades without emotion.”

“Couldn't really decide what to review on as have been impressed with it all. I had an awesome instructor in Sean and would love to attend more of his classes, and would strongly recommend to others. It is how he delivers his class with such confidence but in a fun, lively way (even after work and finishing 11pm), plus he backed his knowledge up with a live trade, which there were many doubters in the room but he proved them he knows what he is on about. Also, the counselors were amazing and, although I got Simon who is great, the others have equally made me and my partner welcome and we felt like we've known them for years, as they make you feel very welcome and are a nice friendly bunch. I have since signed up to a course to do Forex trading and can't wait to get started. I would recommend anybody to just attend as it is really great fun and a HUGE learning curve.”

“Online Trading Academy and the instructor, Chaaya Bachir, teaches how to trade correctly. Chaaya Bachir is one of the great instructors who made Forex trading so simple.”
